Beatrice's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy quality fertilizers that will help improve the quality of her crop and to use the increased profits from crop sales to improve her life.

Beatrice's story

Beatrice is a 43-year-old mom of 4 who lives in Kapsowar, an area with vast economic potential for agribusiness production. She has been farming for many years enabling her to comfortably support her family and pay school fees for her children. Her children are the reason behind Beatrice's undivided effort when it comes to farming.

In the modern world, agriculture has become exceedingly dynamic with upgrades in the kind of inputs that are being used in the sector today. On this note, there is a need to use improved farming inputs for effective production.

Although Beatrice has been earning profits through farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing much of a harvest lately due to a lack of fertilizers. She is seeking a loan to buy quality fertilizers to improve her crop farming, increase her crop output and, as a single mom, earn profits to improve her life.

Beatrice is very thankful for this gesture of goodwill in her life.
